My husband and I have owned Labrador Retrievers for 20 years and have been raising them from birth for the last 15 years. Our first and foremost priority in our breeding program is temperament & health. All of our puppies are raised in our home with our family. Our Labrador litters are born in the house and moved to the puppy area at approximately 5 weeks of age. All Lab puppies are well socialized by the time they go to their new homes.
Our puppies are micro-chipped and come with a hip and eye guarantee, their first set of vaccines and worming along with a puppy packet which includes information regarding your puppy's lines and health certificates of both parents. All of our Labrador puppies are sold on limited registration
, which simply means that if the dog is bred no offspring can be registered, and a spay or neuter agreement is required.
Shortly after the Labrador puppies are born we contact those who are on our labrador puppy list and let them know if we might have a puppy for them based on the color & sex they want. If at that time a family decides they would like to put a hold on a Lab puppy we require a $200 deposit which is refundable if at 8 weeks we cannot provide a puppy to you, but is non-refundable if the buyer chooses to back out. This deposit is applied to the purchase price of $1200. Please keep in mind that we only breed a litter of Labrador puppies when we plan on keeping a puppy or more than one puppy (regardless of sex and color) from that litter for ourselves so if at 8 weeks, for example, the only yellow female in the litter is the puppy we choose to keep, and you are on the list for a yellow female, we will not be able to provide you with a puppy and your deposit will be refunded immediately. Being flexible on sex and/or color will help ensure that we will have a puppy for you. We keep a detailed diary on each puppy from the time they are born to the time they are ready to go to their new homes to help match each puppy with each family. We also ask that our prospective families complete our Lab puppy questionnaire. Our puppies go to their new homes between 8-9 weeks of age. For the health & safety of our puppies we wait until the puppies are at least 5 weeks of age before we allow families to come out and see the puppies.
